December 7-11, 2020: The Acoustical Society of America (ASA) is running their first fully-virtual meeting, Acoustics Virtually Everywhere (AVE). The format is just like a real-life convention with a few interesting twists. If you’ve ever had a scheduling conflict and needed to choose one presentation over another – you don’t necessarily have to! Many of the sessions are prerecorded, so you can watch the presentations when you have time, and if you have questions you can reach out before, during, or after their allotted time!
There will be poster sessions where you can meet the presenters, and there are chat and social platforms for networking as well! Jim DeGrandis from Acoustics First® will be in attendance.
So… if you are an ASA member and were wondering about how this virtual meeting is going to work… check out the “Acoustics Virtually Everywhere” overview here
If you aren’t an ASA member, you can find out more about the benefits of becoming a member here.
We look forward to seeing you there… Virtually.
Fall is always a busy time of year here at Acoustics First®. Besides the AES, our folks have also been making the rounds with the ASTM and the ASA. The ASA in Canada was particularly interesting, with much discussion about the use of computer modeling to predict the acoustic performance of sound diffusers. Our own Jim DeGrandis co-authored a paper with Dr. Hassan Azad and Ronald Sauro of NWAA Labs on using laboratory measurements to improve acoustic simulations.
The ASA also just released a promotional video for their meetings.
If you look closely, you can spot Jim 0:43 seconds into this short video from the ASA. Of course he’s instantly recognizable by his trademark hat!
